The Kobe CH-191SQB is one of Kobe’s premium under cabinet range hoods. It is on the higher price range, but for good reason. It’s 18-guage stainless steel provides a wonderful esthetic to a contemporary kitchen. Being a satin stainless steel finish, its looks can blend with most kitchen designs. The buttons on this Kobe CH-191SQB are located underneath and do not interrupt the sleek look on the front. Being only a little over 9″ tall, this range hood can fit underneath most cabinets and will not require any big changes to your kitchen.
The sleek look does not downplay its power. With most under cabinet range hoods being around 200 CFM, this range hood provides a powerful 760 CFM and a total of 6 different speeds. The lowest speed is called “QuietMode” and runs at only 1 sone. This means you will barely hear that it is running. One of our favorite features on this range hood is the “ECO” mode. Kobe designed this feature to automatically run for 10 minutes every hour in order to clear any smells that may be left over from cooking or other household tasks.
Other features on this range hood are baffle filters, which are the best style of range hood filter available. The baffle filters are also dishwasher-safe, making cleaning easy. The energy efficient LED lights will provide great lighting and a low monthly energy bill. The lights contain 3 settings to adjust to what you need in any given situation. One thing to note is the harder maintenance of satin finishes on stainless steel.
